"the bus driver came back towards christian and told him to go up front with him. so christian acted like he was going to. he stood up and then he threw his book at him. it was like a notebook."but caleb says the driver went too far. "the bus driver turned around and said don't throw stuff at me. and then christian yells a profanity at him. and after that the bus driver says don't talk to me that way and he ripped him out of his seat and like hit him across the face."that's when caleb stood up for the other boy.. "i like didn't think it was right. i was scared but like i knew what should be done and nobody else seemed to be doing it at the time. so i told the bus driver to stop and he told me he said you're next."but caleb stood his ground
10:02 pm
"after he told me to sit down he just flipped everybody off and walked up to the front of the bus and kept driving."a lot of people are saying caleb is kind of a hero for standing up to the bus driver like that. "i've gotten that a lot in school. do you think you are? yeah, i guess. why? well, there's different things that describe heroes. they're not just the people like in movies. they're like people that have moral values and stuff. like so i guess i just stood up for what i believed in." robert scarbrough is charged with assault and child endangerment. a woman who answered the door at his home today said he was not available for comment. the city of des moines now faces a lawsuit over the police-involved shooting death of an unarmed man. 28-year old ryan bolinger was shot and killed by officer vanessa miller on june 9th. police say bolinger first interrupted a traffic stop along merle hay road. bollinger is accused of pulling
10:03 pm
car... and then getting out and dancing in the street... he then got back into his car and drove the speed limit down merle hay road... when he made a u-turn at urbandale avenue... and was blocked in by officer vanessa miller and officer ian lawler... at that point bolinger got out of his car and walked toward officer miller as she sat in her patrol car... in car shooting video miller fired through her window killing bolinger. the next day police said miller fired when bolinger quote, "walked with purpose" towards her car. according to the civil lawsuit filed today.. "there is no provision of federal or iowa law that permits a police officer to kill a citizen on the grounds that the person was "walking with a purpose." 14:09:26 i think we're trying to obtain justice for every citizen of iowa and for every citizen of the united states. we don't live in the wild west. you can't bring him in dead or alive..
10:04 pm
the lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for negligence, battery, and wrongful death. an internal investigation cleared officer miller of wrongdoing. a grand jury also declined to indict. a district judge says governor branstad was within his right to shut down two mental health facilities. branstad used a line-item veto to defund the institutions in mount pleasant and clarinda. rather than try to override the veto.. several democratic lawmakers decided to sue... 23:53-24:10 clearly people understand... court made the decision they did he says the two remaining mental health institutions in cherokee and independence will stay open. in washington congress seems to be running in place... it's now debating changes to a bill they approved just last week...
10:05 pm
in the bill to increase the national debt... lawmakers also approved a measure to exempt government debt collectors from telephone consumer protection laws. that would allow the government to use robocalls and texts to collect money from students with outstanding loans. today the senate introduced a bill to repeal that portion of the bill. that isn't the only correction. lawmakers also say they will approve a bill to repeal the 3-billion dollar cut to federal crop insurance that was also included. congressmembers are going to spend a lot less time in washington, next year... which some might argue is a good thing. the calendar for 2016 shows lawmakers in sessino for just 149-days. they won't meet at all in the months of august and october. that works out to nearly 30-weeks of vacation for the year. the latest poll shows jeb bush's presidential campaign could be in trouble... the quinnipiac poll had a near tie at the top... donald trump one point ahead of ben carson. senators marco rubio and ted cruz were one point apart for third and fourth. running fifth is jeb bush with
10:06 pm

10:07 pm
across the state of iowa how dangerous this really is and what a disaster it can be. and it was a disaster...as nearly 1100 hogs died...being overcome by hydrogen sulfide gas. only 99 hogs survived. 64316 'in the manure hauling process , as we pump it out of there, out of the pits, that gas is created and usually its vented off and with ventilation with the fans.' hoksbergen has lost a few hogs in the past...but nothing of this magnitude. 064257 and we certainly try to follow all protocols, keeping all fans running and ventilation take care of it and things to prevent this but it can still sneak up on you. in fact, so many hogs died that hoksbergen had to take them to this nearby landfill. 061942 we took our equipment and we and we dug a trench about 12 foot deep, 10 feet wide and 150 feet long. we lined it with 2 - 2 1/2 feet of wood fiber that we got from a local
10:08 pm
producer and then we layered the hogs in there and then put trash on top of it and then soil on top of that to cover everything it took nearly 3 days for the folks at the land fill to bury the hogs and they are buried well. 063007-- 06 30 10 'the nearly 1100 hogs are six feet under me right now meanwhile carroll hoksbergen doesn't want what happened to him to happen to other farmers and he has some advice. you just gotta keep checking, you gotta keep the ventilation running just full blast, regardless of how cold it is. mike dasilva, channel 13 news an investigation is underway to find out what caused the ventilation system to fail. the farmer is working with insurance company to determine how much of the loss will be covered. an hunter's trophy buck got him into trouble with the iowa dnr. joe franz shot this gorgeous record- setting deer on his land in marion county. it was a local legend named "palmer.' franz says he spent months tracking it before he finally got a shot.
10:09 pm
but the d-n-r has another theory. they accused franz of using bait to lure the deer in... franz is waiting for his day in court to prove otherwise. "i did have to sell my land and i closed on selling my land yesterday so i'd have the means to fight the battle that has ensued" a preliminary hearing on the case is scheduled for november 16th. -wx tease- instead a heisman.. how about an admire... instead a heisman.. how about an admire... later in sports... his picks for the hawkeye's most valuable... most underrated... and best play so far this year.

and a view iowa won't ever see again... right after the break... the fall of the ash... what iowa standso lose... and hy youhould ta a moment to
10:11 pm
native americans used its wood for baskets. pioneers turned it into axe handles. today, the ash is credited with turning our treeless towns into welcoming places to live. but a tiny insect is drastically changing the view. the emerald ash borer is already in 26-counties.. and its only a matter of time until it reaches the rest.
10:12 pm
beauty our state is losing. they stood out, like they always do-- with a gilded salutation to they stood out, like they always do-- with a gilded salutation to summer...the green ash turned to gold...the white to aubergine. saving their best for the last warm days. heres hoping you noticed...because this year is to go down as their best ever. nothing to come will compare...to this...the fall of the ash. 094600 'theyre gonna leave quite a void in our cities...' 101513 'its very sad.' 101521 'i dont really think people in iowa understand just how bad its gonna be.' 101440 'its hard to be the bearer of bad news.' its news that reeks of irony: giant trees which have stood through the biggest storms will soon fall to the smallest foe. 095655 'the borer will start working from the top of the
10:13 pm
experts estimate the emerald ash borer is at least three years into its assault on central iowa and that casualties are coming soon. 103820 'everywhere we drive in central iowa and probably anywhere in iowa, were gonna see a lot of dead trees.' the effect on our landscape could pale in comparison to that on our city budgets. in public spaces alone, there are 26-million ash trees in iowa. 094922 'if we said conservatively on the average its gonna coast $500 per tree to remove, you know when you do the math on that, 26,000,000 times $500...thats $13 billion just for removal. and that doesnt say anything about the cost of replacement, which removal. and that doesnt say anything about the cost of replacement, which would be another billion or two.' as that sinks in, consider this: most of our ash trees were planted in the 60s and 70s as a response to another invasive pest: dutch elm disease. 104517 'it killed thousands
10:14 pm
and thousands of trees in every small town in the midwest.' the ash seemed to be the perfect replacement. fast-growing, tough, tolerant of urban environments. and cheap. suburbs like clive planted them by the thousands. but its the many small towns like ellsworth where ashes make up nearly 50% of the canopy, which now find themselves in the worst spot. 101652 'it could bankrupt small communities when they have to deal with these dead and dying ash trees.' treatments work but require a long- term commitment. many ashes will likely be left to die, creating bigger hazards as their heavy branches turn brittle. 104346 'its going to be a problem. its a problem today, and its going to be worse.' arborists and foresters worry about disposing of the ash trees, but also about what will take their place. there are already 3 times as many maples in iowa as there are ashes. adding more could spell disaster should they
10:15 pm
101947 'there are going to be future bugs and future pathogens that hit our trees.' 095247 'you could be looking at eab times three, ten, fifteen, twenty years down the road.' we might avoid a repeat of history by taking full notice of what exactly is happening today: the loss of an iowa native. 102750 'this will go away.' 102248 'and then you have that empty hole and you think my favorite tree used to be there.' 095454 'an individual tree i can live with; the whole species, thats pretty damn tough.' there is time for one last look...to secure in our minds and hard drives...the memory of the times when they held against the wind...and shaded our children. when they secured the banks of our waters...and their leaves danced down our streets. a time when they stood over
10:16 pm
golden and alive...until the fall of the ash. andy fales, channel 13 news. experts caution that putting off dealing with an ash tree will only add to the eventual cost. treatments can only be applied to mostly-healthy trees, and dead or dying ones are more expensive to remove. bears at a wildlife park enjoying the first snow in

do you think when you are president you'll be paid as much as if you were a man-male... this is one of the jobs where they have to pay you the same. but there are so many examples where that doesn't happen. i'm going to do everything i can to make sure every woman in every job gets paid the same... ...as the men who are doing that job. i'm hillary clinton

if you think we can grow our economy while ignoring climate change, think again. america's most innovative companies are already moving to clean energy using existing technology to improve their bottom line. now we need a plan to help businesses and families across america to save money on electricity and create millions of new jobs. it all starts with 50% clean energy by 2030.

10:22 pm
with oklahoma coming off a 36 point win over texas tech. he's right. nothing comes easily in norman for isu though. the cyclones are 4 touchdown underdogs. #1 north carolina plays at uni november 21st, but it looks like the tar heels won't have marcus paige in the line-up. paige broke a bone in his non-shooting hand. paige is a big reason roy williams scheduled the game, as a homecoming for paige. the all-american point guard played high school ball at nearby marion linn- mar. williams takes players out of iowa, but say this, he tries to bring them back. paige will miss 3 to

jeb bush was a very strong governor, probably the strongest governor in the history of the state of florida. he was a young guy and i think there were some folks in the legislature that thought they might be able to run over him. that didn't happen. one tax cut wasn't enough- he had to do more. it wasn't enough to have 15,000 kids
10:27 pm
with school choice in florida, he wanted to have 100,000 kids. if he didn't like a project, it was going to be vetoed. it didn't matter if you were a republican. it didn't matter if you were his best friend. he said: 'this is where we're going, this is how we're going to reform state government...' every politician comes in talking about making change, and generally there's not much change. but governor bush made a lot of changes. he got the nickname veto corleone. if he saw something in the budget that he thought violated his conservative principles, you could guarantee it was gonna get whacked. he vetoed a bunch of my stuff and i was the senate president. the message to washington, d.c., is 'get ready...' because there will be change.
